We need to talk about this…If you’re a human (never know nowadays) you’ve experienced “professional jealousy.” The contraction that comes from jealousy is unlike any other.
And it’s compounded by the fact that we sometimes even wish defeat and failure upon others. Sometimes it’s the people closest to us. Then….the gigantic shame wave pours over us, drowning us in self-pity and stagnation. Ahhh..
You’ve chosen a path to go down. A profession, skills, and a career to pursue. We’re all trying to stand out, be authentic, and build something awesome. It’s a vulnerable and brave thing to do. But what happens when it feels like everyone else has it figured out but you?
What happens if one of your friends experiences huge success in something you’ve been doing longer. Jealousy is there for a reason. It’s not bad. t’s only “bad” when it steals our attention for too long and sucks us into a comparison trap. So what can we do to turn jealously into an opportunity?
